Minnesota is the Cinderella story of this baseball season. They’ve bashed over 200 homers this year, considerably more than everyone else. Their starting pitching has been pretty good. The bullpen? Could use work.
They added two arms before the trade deadline–Sergio Romo and Sam Dyson. Romo has been good so far. Dyson made his debut yesterday and fucked off a sweep in the Bottom of the 9th against Miami. What was once a double digit lead a month ago is now just a three game lead.
This Twins team does have swagger, though. I’m not afraid of the Yankees or the Astros or any team come playoff time. It’s making sure they get there that worries me. They can’t afford to fuck this up. If they make the postseason, I believe they can make it to the World Series. However, I do believe the Dodgers will win it all.
